Layouts and other Creative Projects

A class I taught for my local Scrapbook Store. The 'picture' is actually a thankyou card; you can open it and read the thank you message and the bottom of the letter 'G' keeps it closed on the page.

I had so much fun creating this 'messy' page. I got to tear, shred, punch, ink, smudge, stain - very cathartic. I got to use a Tim Holtz stamp set I picked up in the States; it's the one that looks like a coffee mug ring. You could, of course, ink a coffee mug and stamp it but that would give me no opportunity to buy the stamp set (it came with more than the one on there and I can use it in a million different ways - haven't we all used lines like these before?).

A mini book I started creating at a class at my local scrapbook shop - thanks Jo! I added more pages using acetate, cardstock and patterned paper. I am really happy with the completed book. The plastic cover I created to protect it is from an old folder from work I cut down to size - helps the planet and helps me out too.

Just a few of the inside pages - pattern paper is Bo Bunny

A cute little kid I am lucky enough to be 'Aunty' to :)

A clock for my Dad I deconstructed then put back together with pics. I love getting items at a $2 shop, secondhand store or garage sale then deconstructing them, repurposing them and generally stamping (literally!) my own personal style on them.

Who says you can't use pink on a layout with boys? Just don't tell my nephews!

No pink in sight this time fellas.

Yes, I did actually do this - I am as amazed and surprised as you are. This is the last one I did, there's also a Bird of Paradise plant and a zebra - the zebra is my favourite but I'll have to hunt around for a pic of that one. disclaimer: I went to a night class on fabric painting and for the last one (the elephant) I pretty much had the tutor to myself.

Layouts for FIX Designs for use on their stand at SENZ in Chch July 2010

Another layout for FIX Designs for their stand at SENZ Chch July 2010. Disclaimer: I don't like this layout; It's a bit basic and beginner for me. I'm trying to embrace the concept of finishing a project and moving on to the next project. It's done, let it go.
